Over 30 new Windows Mobile 6.5 devices before the end of 2009? Yes, according to DigiTimes there’ll be 30 devices from 15 different manufacturers. Benjamin Tan, Senior Director in the “GCR Mobile Team” at Microsoft China revealed the tit-bit of information as he chatted to reporters in China.
Vendors include LG, Samsung, Acer, HTC, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba and HP. Hmm.. 30 in the next 3 months? We’d certainly like to see that. At the moment there’s the Touch2, Acer F1, Sony Ericsson Xperia X2, LG GM750 and probably some others we’ve forgotten about, so another 20-odd ? That’d be pretty amazing unless Benjamin Tan meant “30 phones will be using Windows Mobile 6.5″, which is a totally different thing – we’re expecting OS updates to devices like the Touch Diamond2 etc.
